Desert Eagle

I couldn't find a better place to put this so here it is. I am looking people who have experience with Desert Eagle pistols and what they think about them in terms of quality, reliability and accuracy. I am thinking about a .44 or .50 to plink with and shoot bowling pins and just general high-powered blasting and perhaps hunting.

put 60 rounds through my .50AE today. well actually I put 20 rounds through it, and then some people at the shoot I organized put the other 40 rounds through it. I love my DE, I don't shoot it as much as I would like simply because it is pricey to shoot, even reloading it costs me about $0.80 a round in Canadian pesos. I have shot about 6,000 rounds through this gun since I got it. Every year at my big gunshow it puts about 300 rounds through it in one day, which is a good work out. With the exception of 1 dud round (today actually) I have had zero problems with this gun, ever. It has always worked flawlessly, and is deadly accurate out to 100 yds (off a bench). with a red dot scope on it, I can constantly hit a 8 inch plate at 100 (again off the bench). with iron sights, 4 inch plate at 25 is a cake walk. get one you will not be sorry.
I use 32grs of H110 behind a 325gr JHP, with a magnum large pistol primer obviously.

Thanks Slavex. That's the type of encouragement I'll need to make it happen!

I watched a guy shoot the .357 version at a pin shoot recently. He said the gun was relatively new, but he liked it a lot so far. I'm thinking why not go big with .50? We'll see!

Desert Eagle

I had a Desert Eagle 44 mag, just traded it last week for a S&W Comped Hunter 44 mag. The Desert Eagle was very accurate, worked smoothly and was alot of fun to shoot. My application is handgun hunting. I found that a good revolver served that purpose better for me. To each his own.

all steel,very high quality

I love my de's.
built like a tank,fun to shoot,and they get better the more you shoot them.
they are a large frame pistol,and I mean large,but it gets smaler as you shoot it.
the recoil is less than you will get from a 454 or 480 ruger,very controllable.
the huge fireball and load report will bring everyone at the range to your stall to see what all the commotion is all about.
dont buy a de unles you like attention,and it can be quite an addiction like the 1911.I have 2. :P
